Remembering the Truth

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

This morning Robb highlighted a few things out of our devotional book and laid it out on the table for me to read when i woke up.
As always i was amazed by the way God always knows exactly what i need for that day.

"I weep with grief; encourage me by your word. Keep me from lying to myself; give me the privilege of knowing your law. I have chosen to be faithful; I have determined to live by your law." ~Psalm 119:28-30

Lies i tell myself: I will never be able to be happy again. My life is over. God must not love me. He must be punishing me. I have failed.
Emotions lie to us and people mislead us but God's word speaks the truth which we are so desperate for.
Do I still listen to those lies? Yes, all the time (see post below)
But i believe in the truths and pray for my eyes to be opened to the truths found in the Word so they can wipe away my thoughts and feelings of doubt and discouragement.
I have had a hard time lately praying, and doing devotions, its just been so hard. But days like today make me realize how important it is to do that. Even in the midst of my hardships God knows how to comfort me. I just have to go and find it.

~Blessings~

Katie,
After I read your previous post about how down you felt, I wanted to write to you and now reading this post, I want to encourage you. Let those bad days and moments come and let yourself cry and be angry. All of those days are part of what God is doing in and through you. There will be good days and smiles and laughs and chances for you to encourage your friends again. That's not where you are now; so seek God in the place you find yourself. I promise he is faithful even when you can't see through your tears.
I remember being at a point thinking to myself, "I can't pray. What would I say?" My husband encouraged me to say just that God, to be honest and real with him; early on those prayers were short and very centered on me and my immediate needs. Know that he will meet you where you are.
I'm sorry this was so long, but I am praying for you and your husband and I know so many others are doing the same.

Katie, Just want to say what an inspiration you and your husband are to others. It's okay to have some days you feel down. Praying for you.

Katie,

I love you! I can't take away the pain or the hurt, but I know God is right there just holding you up when you can't stand...even when you feel you've reached the bottom...and then it falls out again...He is there and I am praying that even in the darkest of times that you can feel his warmth shining on you even if you can't lift your face to see his light. I continue praying each day for you and Robb. At His feet, Amy
Psalm 42

You don't know me; I just happened upon your blog. I'm so sorry for your loss and all you've been through. You're going to be a great mother someday, and I pray that day will come soon for you.

I stumbled across this site, doing a search for the book "when hello means goodbye". I'm a labor doula, and wanted to learn more about how I can be of help to women, going through the same pain you are. I'm sure this site is helping so many moms know they are not alone. I'm reminded, of the song "praise you in the storm", I'm sure you know it. You are doing just that. Knowing he is the God that gives, and takes away. Sometimes it doesn't make much sence. But there has to be a bigger purpose. Maybe this site will save one mom, who feels she can't bare her pain a moment longer, to see she is not alone, and that God can bring her some peace and hope. God bless you and your family, and blessing for the years to come. -Hallie Dedrick, Clearwater, FL
